That’s the phone call I got this afternoon that had me abandoning everything else I was gonna do today to bring some pieces downtown to the double leveled gallery on Orchard Street. I’m excited to be getting called for things like this.
The show, called The Sound Of Color, will be up for one day tomorrow at Van Der Plas Gallery and then return Tuesday for a two week run.
